http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/10/hold_on_there_romney_pushers.html So I get this email from Chris Christie telling me that this is the most important election in generations and why I need to vote for Mitt Romney because he’s the best chance we have of defeating Obama in 2012. Why is the governor of New Jersey pushing Romney at me? For that matter […]
“Strangely, in Tuesday evening’s “economic” debate in Hanover, N.H., immigration, legal or otherwise, was never mentioned. Indeed, Messrs. Romney and Cain have demonstrated less interest in illegal immigration itself than in using the issue to attack Mr. Perry. Mr. Romney, whose jobs plan includes no fewer than 59 points, has said of illegal immigration, “Of course we build a fence,” as if that were all there were to it. If the other GOP candidates wish to place themselves to the right of Mr. Perry on this issue, fine. But Republicans would have more faith in their ability to secure the border if they demonstrated that they had given the matter some thought.
Mr. Perry should stop sounding so defensive. He has opposed illegal immigration as stoutly as anyone, but, alone among the candidates, he has dealt with the reality of life on the border. Since his state has the good sense to provide only modest welfare benefits, he should explain, Texans understand that immigrants come to Texas to work, not to collect handouts. And they see no contradiction between calling on the federal government to enforce the law and making the best of the situation Washington has imposed on them, helping undocumented aliens, once in the state, to acquire skills and an education.”
“We Are Speaking Of A Network”: A Malicious Game of Join The Dots http://daphneanson.blogspot.com/ The following piece (entitled “The Cold War On The Truth”) by that stalwart British champion of Israel Jonathan Hoffman (widely praised by those who despair of the lily-livered approach that characterises too much of the Anglo-Jewish “leadership” for his leonine courage […]

Latest horrific report on NHS standards must give UK pause for thought about its socialist medical system An independent health watchdog has found that more than half of NHS hospitals fail to meet optimum needs in care of the elderly: A fifth are so bad they’re breaking the law
Yet another report has found appalling shortcomings in the standards of care provided by Britain’s National Health Service.
On Thursday, the Care Quality Commission – an independent health and social care watchdog – released the findings of a study of standards in the treatment of the elderly in 100 British hospitals.
Specifically, the investigation focused on whether “essential standards of dignity and nutrition were being met”.
http://www.thecommentator.com/article/534/clearly_europe_s_leaders_are_contemptuous_of_democracy_but_are_they_even_sane_ After another shameful assault on democracy, EU leaders can now go ahead with their EFSF euro bailout plan. But it’s doomed from the start and could cost taxpayers trillions So, it’s all smiles in Brussels again. Slovakia’s parliament duly did as it was told on Thursday and reversed Tuesday’s rejection of the European Financial […]
“From Paris, the patriarch was meant to travel to Washington to see President Obama, but his visit was abruptly canceled when the White House learned of the patriarch’s politically incorrect warning. Mr. Obama, who never sees a Muslim potentate without bowing low enough to bang his head on the floor, was eager to avoid the patriarch lest meeting him offend harsh Muslim regimes.
Saddest of all, self-satisfied pastors, priests, prelates, bishops and assorted other divines in the West have been uninterested in speaking up for their fellow Christians marooned in the Islamic world. Fear, indifference and cowardice reigns.”
We’ve “enjoyed” the Arab spring, celebrated by one and nearly all. But if you’re a Christian under the wheels of an Egyptian army truck, it looks a lot like winter.
“Rarely in the course of human events have so few been blamed byso much for so many. There are precedents, for example, when Adolf Hitler claimed that a Jewish “stab in the back” lost World War I for Germany. The notion that the problems of three hundred million Arabs revolve around the governance of a few million Palestinians has the same order of credibility. ”
Here’s your final exam question in Middle Eastern studies:
A mass of Coptic Christians marches through Cairo to protest the military government’s failure to protect them from Muslim radicals. They are attacked by stone-throwing, club-wielding rowdies. Armed forces security personnel intervene, and the Copts fight it out with the soldiers, with two dozen dead and scores injured on both sides. Who is to blame?
The full credit answer is: Benjamin Netanyahu, for building apartments in Jerusalem. If that’s not what you wrote, don’t blame me if you can’t get a job at the New York Times.
http://townhall.com/columnists/michellemalkin/2011/10/14/costs_of_the_occupiers/print The trash generated by the “Occupy Wall Street” protests keeps piling up. So do the bills. Liberal media outlets claim the anarchic, anti-capitalist movement is more popular than the tea party. But wait until Americans across the country get a full picture of the costs of the aimless occupiers. In New York City, government […]

Soon after Sunday’s Maspero massacre, where the Egyptian military slaughtered Christians demonstrating over the destruction of their churches—including by running them over with armored vehicles—some Egyptian media began reporting that U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, having seen enough, declared that the U.S. plans on […]
“Prisoner releases only embolden terrorists by giving them the feeling that even if they are caught, their punishment will be brief. Worse, by leading terrorists to think such demands are likely to be met, they encourage precisely the terrorist blackmail they are supposed to defuse.”
The writer of those lines was then-opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu. Netanyahu wrote those lines in his book, Fighting Terrorism: How Democracies Can Defeat Domestic and International Terrorists.
Israel needs that Netanyahu to lead it. But in the face of the current Netanyahu’s abject surrender to terrorism, apparently he is gone.
At best, Netanyahu comes out of this deal looking like a weak leader. At worst, he comes out as a morally challenged, irresponsible, opportunistic politician.
